JANE B. BALDWIN 

Duluth, Minnesota 
Mt. Holyoke Four years 

Student Government President '22 

Hockey Numerals '20, '21, '22 
Class Vice-President '21 Hockey Team '22 

Class President '19 "A" Society '22

Senior-Mid Play '20 

When tall little Jane first came from far-away 
Duluth, she looked and acted like Alice in 
Wonderland and we never thought she'd grow 
dignified enough in four years to be head of the 
school. But she surely has, and when she tells 
us all our faults we realize what a fine leader she 
is; and that there's a lot of ability and character 
in that tall, stunning Jane. Those long legs do 
good work all right ! — be it when Jane is " wing- 
ing" along the hockey field or dancing in the 
recreation room. And just once in a while 
Room 22 resounds with the "rough-housing" of 
the "Baby Phyl " and "Infant Jane" of those 
childhood days upon the fourth floor. 




PHYLLIS BANKART 

"Phyl" 

Brookline, Massachusetts 

Four years 
Student Government Vice-President '22 

Hockey Numerals '22 
Entertainment Committee '22 

Phyl has grown up all of a sudden. Is it be- 
cause "Hinckley" is now in New York and too 
far away to wield her ten-year-old's influence? 
Maybe. And also Phyl has to live up to her 
weight of duties. But she has not undergone a 
complete metamorphosis. There's some butter- 
fly left, as you can see by her darling clothes, — 
and it's easy to imagine her a year from now 
having a wonderful time out in Brookline — 
while she pretends to be in at Mrs. Garland's 
learning how to keep house !

LAURA BEGGS 

Newark, Ohio 



Two years

Class Treasurer '21 
Senior-Mid Play '21 Senior Play '22 

Bible Group Leader '22 Draper Reader '22 

Elocution Christmas Play '22 

We expect Laura to bring eternal fame to 
Abbot as the bridge champion of America. But 
she never gets so absorbed that she forgets to be 
tactful or diplomatic. She is always the perfect 
lady in our plays and is one-half of the Wilkins- 
Beggs Siamese twins. 




SARAH MARJORIE BICKFORD 

"Sallie" 
Worcester, Massachusetts 



Mt. Holyoke 
Hockey Numerals '22 
Northfield Delegate '21 



Two years 

Arm Band '22 

Bible Group Leader '22 



That Blush seems to run in the family. And 
"Honest" too, only it doesn't look the way you 
say it, Marje. We'd like to know what you and 
Char find to giggle about so much. The sounds 
that issue from "25" sometimes are enough to 
drive a proctor crazy. And Marje, you certainly 
make a stern proctor, you probably inherited it 
from Billy. The Bickfords certainly know how 
to make themselves liked. These family failings!

GWENDOLYN F. BLOOMFIELD 

" Gwen" 

Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts 

Two years 
A. C. A. Pres. '22 Class Vice-Pres. '22 

Student Council '22 Q. E. D. (Treas. '21) '22 
English V Play '21 Advisory Board '22 

Northfield Delegate '21 Honor Roll '21 

Senior Play '22 

Gwen's one of the charming girls that has 
enough personality for the whole Senior class 
put together — that is, whenever she's presiding 
at something or conversing with Miss Bailey or 
a D. O. G. She is also one of those excitable, 
flapperish girls that gets all ahead of herself when 
she talks and can't be bothered with pronouncing 
every syllable. And by the way, where is there 
a better dancer, and just as capable leader in 
Abbot's social life? 




SARAH BODWELL 

Andover, Massachusetts 

"Smith Four years 

Class Book Board '22 

Basketball Numerals '18, '19, '20, '21 

Whenever we think of Sarah we always think 
too of her teas. Memories of those too good 
sandwiches and a jolly time haunted us for days 
after. We appreciate it, Sal, and we hand it to 
you for having that faculty. That old adage, 
"Laugh and the world laughs with you," applies 
to Sal all right, for she's always laughing when 
she isn't studying, and this is just one of the signs 
of her good nature. As for being capable and 
reliable, well, that goes without saying — she's 
the most wholesome sort (excuse us, Sal).

ISABEL BROWN 

Dallas, Texas 

Three years 

Basketball Numerals '21, '22 Arm Band '21 

Senior Play '21 Northfield Delegate '21 

Bible Group Leader '22 



"Well, yes, but I don't see 



-" As usual 
it's Isabel arguing about something in class. 
And did you ever know anyone who could find so 
many sensations in a newspaper as she can? 
She's quite the snappy basketball player too. 
There isn't anything Isabel misses and if she 
goes to Europe as she plans to, she will be able 
to tell us more about it than Baedecker himself. 




MILDRED BURFORD 



Texarkana, Texas 



Texas University 



Two vears 



She could easily pose as "before and after". 
Do you remember those long locks that used to 
hang down her back? How are the mighty fallen ! 
She is the class infant in age, but in mathematical 
brains we understand she quite leads the class. 
Of course she has the Southern accent and we 
wonder whether her languorous glances are 
Southern too, or just Mildred.

Student Government Vice-President '22 

Bible Group Leader '22 
Catts is one of the old guard, having wandered 
in and about the portals of this school some three 
years now — and many have been her accom- 
plishments therein. Caddy, conscientious, crav- 
ing, capable and cute, has come off with many 
scalps in her collection officially, and athletically 
speaking. As one of the Mouses from Cranford 
she has added to the notoriety of that illustrious 
town. Keep it up, Catts! 




KATHERINE DAMON

Q. E. D. '21, 22 Honor Roll '19, '20 

Courant Business Manager '19, '20, '21, '22 

We have Kay's destiny all arranged. She will 
be an income tax collector. When she is asked 
what experience she's had, she'll say, "Oh, I 
was treasurer of '22 at Abbot." They'll say, 
"You're qualified for the toughest cases then, 
here's the job." Kay makes a wonderful treas- 
urer. She didn't even lose count of the ten cents 
that some benevolent Senior gave to pay for the 
picnic cups. Kay is one of the many (?) shining 
lights in College Math, and is disappointed if she 
doesn't get A plus on her Monday test. In spite 
of her brains she's a fine girl and we like her.

ROSAMOND DAVIS 

"Ros" 
Manchester, New Hampshire 



Smith 

Mandolin Club '20, '21 



Three years 
Arm Band '20 



Hockey Numerals '21 

Ros is the sort whose good nature affords her a 
good time continually. That giggle we hear from 
Room 28 certainly adds greatly to the environ- 
ment of the corridor. Ros is one of the college 
prep. Seniors who love Monday ? ?. She certain- 
ly can jazz that old mandolin though — " Every- 
body step"! 




RUTH DEWEY 

Dorchester Center, Massachusetts 



Senior Play '22 



Two years 



Giggle, giggle, giggle! We know that Ruth has 
a sense of humor 'cause she's always laughing at 
something. She is all for Dartmouth too. We 
hear that she almost drives her innocent room- 
mate wild, while she learns to play the guitar, 
mandolin, "uke", — one of those anyway. It's 
great to be musical. Ruth will probably end up 
as a lady minister or something really good, she's 
always so in earnest.

GERTRUDE FRANKLIN 

Andover, Massachusetts 

Wellesley Two years 

Fidelio '21, '22 Arm Band '21 

Honor Roll '21, '22 

We always recognize Gertrude by her red hat, 
otherwise we wouldn't know she was even here 
because she is so small and very quiet. Never- 
theless, she is a very important addition to our 
class, and what would Fidelio do without her? 
Never mind, Gertrude, "silence is golden"- — ■ 
and your marks prove it.

"Kay" 



Changsha, China . 



Wellesley 
Arm Band '21 
Odeon '21, 22 



Two years 

Bible Group Leader '22 

Honor Roll '22 



Out from China came Kay to us, so we guess 
China's a pretty good place. As a member of 
Odeon, Kay certainly makes good. Even Miss 
Sweeney gives her good marks in English. She is 
going to publish a book some day, "Adjectives 
for Use in English Themes". Last summer Kay 
went to camp and, well, there never was any- 
thing like it! It is our opinion that she sleeps 
with the catalogue under her pillow. It is 
rumored that an ode on the occasion of the burial 
of her pet toothbrush was composed by Miss 
Gage this summer. We wonder why it had to be 
buried!

Fidelio '21, '22 



Four years 
Honor Roll, '19, '20, '21, '22 



Last year Beatrice had to leave us and un- 
fortunately could not graduate with her class. 
Of course we all felt sorry for her, but 1922 con- 
siders herself lucky to be able to count Molly as 
one of her own. We point her out to little preps 
as the girl who never flunks and apply the prov- 
erb "Still waters run deep". Did you ever see 
such an unquenchable thirst for knowledge? 
Verily it is the higher life that Molly leads here 
at Abbot and we wish her all kinds of success at 
Wellesley next year.

Calendar Committee '22 

Remember Helen in the Senior-Mid play? 
One would never think that she had lived in a big 
city to see her impersonate a farmer. She leads 
a Bible class, with Olive's help. It is a great 
success. We have Helen's career decided. She's 
going to be in the front-line chorus of the Zieg- 
feld Follies, owing to her experience in Fidelio 
and the Senior play. By the bye, we hear both 
Miss Mason and Miss Kelsey have to come in 
during study hour some nights. We wonder why !

Have you seen Bob emerge with a radiance 
which outdoes Phoebus or the grocer's best 
apples? Considering her athletically, compara- 
tively few balls are hurled at the sun. Her right 
eye is open now and her ears are folding back 
into their natural position; even the dents in her 
hair are again perfect. But where, oh, where 
has her appendix gone? She's trying to forget 
on shredded wheat. We feel that a fitting gift 
would be a stained-glass window in the gym- 
nasium to you, Bob! 




JULIET HASKELL

Ft. McPherson, Atlanta, Georgia

Julie belongs entirely to the Army, and don't 
you forget it. That is how she went to the 
Philippines and the thousand other places she 
has been. When they gave out brains she sat 
on the front row. But why did she bob her 
hair? We notice a delicate Southern accent after 
vacation, but she slips back into the honest-to- 
goodness Yankee after a week with strenuous 
Simp!

Goodness, Ruth, we wish we could turn this 
over to you to write, not because we can't think 
of many nice things to say, but you with your 
adept pen, who made that birthday cake at 
Intervale sound like a ten-story wedding cake in 
your impressionistic theme, could do so much 
better. We feel certain that your fame will be 
great because when "Fate spilt the beans" you 
received a good big portion of possibilities.

"Say, do you know? — Let me tell you. — 

Have you heard? — I know something!" 

Yes, it's Peg, and we suspect her of never run- 
ning down. And how she can keep her room in 
such immaculate order and be up on all the gossip 
of school is beyond us. We would like to visit 
her in her "house all her own". That cold blond 
good-lookingness is striking and we think she 
would be a great success on the concert stage, 
with her musical ability. But we can't forget 
her as a conversationalist, — for she'll talk on 
most any subject, and that sparkle of wit, ah, 
that's where the Irish Tener comes in!

Olive can't go through the eye of a needle, 
but on her voice and art she made her course just 
one hectic golden sequence of soul spasms. She 
has been very successful at making the entertain- 
ment committee successfully entertaining this 
year, and her posters which foretell the events 
hold second place only to the events themselves. 
And even if she does require a lot of sleep! — 
We're an awful seducer of the young, aren't we, 
Olive!!

Bubbles of the bubbling laughter, and the 
white (?) sandals and the daily letters and 
specials! Was it an accident that made her 
Mercutio, the loquacious, in the play? She 
draws, and appears every now and then in 
Fidelio, and Oh, those mystery stories she writes 
for English! We often wish we knew what is 
going on behind those speculative eyes — ■ but 
perhaps it's just as well we don't.

Where did you get those "schoolma'amish" 
ways, Ruth? Certainly not. from your room- 
mate. We suspect that your great enthusiasm 
for Princeton is not entirely explained by your 
brother's presence there. The way your room 
gets cluttered up with "Tigers" is suspicious, to 
say the least. You certainly manage to write 
some good things, — poetry 'n'everything. Any- 
one who can combine brains and humor is re- 
markable, that's all.

Little and dear and sweet. That's Helen. 
We think your bobbed hair is a great success. 
We hear that those dances in Reading during 
Christmas vacation were just "wonderful". 
Probably your being there had something to do 
with it. It's queer that these innocent-looking 
girls always make the worst, or, if you look at 
it from Stu G's point of view, the best proctors. 
And the way she hurries. "Excuse my dust", 
that's Helen!

" Woman is a conundrum, yet man never wants 
to give her up," so they say. Cissy runs pretty 
true to form. She's a mixture of hard, solid 
facts and soft appealingness. Cissy's dependable 
and has worked hard for her living this year as 
editoress of this noble edition. But she will be 
literal and catches many a slip twixt cup and 
lip, — I'll bite, does she? It is said that she be- 
longs to the academic club in self-control and as 
for lectures, her passion is so intense she has to 
seek them upon Hill and dale regardless!

Van, the bridge fiend! She even plays between 
speeches at play practice. Who would guess 
that she could be the rheumatic complainer in 
The Neighbors? She doesn't confine herself to 
these little indoor sports, however, but goes in 
for tennis and basketball. She sings too. Oh, 
she has lots of sides, we might call her a polygon!

Slip is one of the few people who can accom- 
plish and talk at the same time. She does love 
to talk, but we won't hold that against her, — 
she lives with "Mouse". Of course when one 
edits the Courant, counts A. C. A. Sunday night 
contributions, and is in Q. E. D., one doesn't have 
much time for other things. But we haven't 
noticed Slip getting worn out before her time. 
She is always ready to help anyone she can and 
in any way she can. And as for Duluth, well it 
seems to turn them out long and lean!

Will you ever forget the shock when she bobbed 
her hair? She probably will, at least she forgets 
everything else. She is the girl who tried to eat 
soup with a fork for five minutes before she dis- 
covered her error. She doesn't forget her 
speeches in the play though, or how to do Math.

"Ever have that depressed feeling?" Try 
Mount's Miraculous, Meritorious Mixture of 
Mirth and Mischief. If she can't cheer you up 
in any other way she'll argue you into it. She's 
so radical that blue looks purple when she gets 
near it. Mouse has a wide store of knowledge 
which many don't realize. She's for deep stuff 
and all that sort of thing. But we must admit 
that as far as a good sport is concerned she's 
unsurpassed and guaranteed to come up on the 
right side of the worst mixups. Hot stuff!

This is the girl who is always in the corner of 
the Senior parlor, her nose in a Latin book. Why 
of course, it's Dottie Moxley. She may seem 
quiet when you first meet her, but wait 'til you 
know her and you'll find more than one reason 
for her popularity. Dottie is one of the good old 
stand-bys too, just think, she has a five-year 
"rep". Maybe that's why she makes such a 
good Stu. G. representative for the day scholars.

Another bridge enthusiast and a member of 
the now extinct Big Four. Her accent is the 
ultra New England type and you wouldn't have 
to look at the label on her luggage to know she's 
from Massachusetts. She's a pretty peppy 
basketball player, to say nothing of the brains 
she displays in class. 




CHARLOTTE D. PETRIKIN 



"Char" 



Denver, Colorado 



Arm Band '21 



Two years

She's the girl from Denver, "a breezy young 
westerner". When she first learned to play 
"Kalua" on the mandolin, well, she almost 
burst, she was so proud. And those stunning 
black canton crepe dresses! And the sister in 
Paris! There's a subtle change in Char since she 
put up her bobbed locks, a more dignified de- 
meanor "don't cha know". Char was one of the 
shining lights at the Homestead last year, and 
we've heard tell of midnight parties over there, — 
but we won't say anything about them.

Calendar Committee '22 

" Buzz, buzz," is that a fly in the Senior parlor? 
No, it's just Florence discussing some weighty 
question, such as "wire nails". Speaking of 
bugs (we were, weren't we?) the way Florence 
carried on about the buffalo bug in the Senior- 
Mid play was a shout. Along with her dramatic 
ability she has lots of other accomplishments 
which we can't stop to enumerate now — but 
we must say she takes a very decisive stand for 
such a small person.

Take a good chunk of humor, and a pinch of 
sarcasm, a generous cup of sympathy and a heap 
of brains that verge on versatile, and when you've 
rolled them into an angular being with long, 
lustrous blue eyes, you've got Bug. She isn't 
really anything except a playwright, the class 
actor, and the best bluffer that ever squeaked 
Abbot's floors. There aren't many gazelles 
either, who can play jumping center as grace- 
fully as Bug, — and her facial expression while 
participating in this sport is a model to be copied 
by all preps. She is ingenious along many lines, 
especially in new and fanciful styles of hair- 
dressing. All kidding aside, we'd be a pepless 
class without her and, like Gorton's Codfish, be 
quite spineless.

Another athletic Melrose-ite, though you 
wouldn't think so when you see her, or hear her 
gentle little giggle. You would expect her to be 
fatter considering the amount of Malted Milk 
she consumes, but it's probably fated that she 
shall remain a sylph. She's an energetic alto in 
the Glee Club but — it's her smile you remember, 
and her hair.

She comes from Pennsylvania but she is not a 
Quaker. By no means! She manages to sing in 
Fidelio and to prepare learned arguments for 
Q. E. D., and at the same time to be Miss 
Howey's most atte.iive (?) pupil. As to her 
character, by her own confession she is fickle, 
empty-headed (perhaps rooming with Whinery 
has something to do with that), and jealous. As 
for us, we have remarked that she is a loyal, 
efficient, calm member of '22, and we are very 
glad she is in it.

"Hello there! Oh, are you for Yale?" Of 
course it's Eleanor, the valiant Harvard cham- 
pion. However, in spite of her unreasonableness 
on that point she's always ready to do anything 
for anybody. She apparently doesn't care for 
her brother, at least we never hear her speak of 
him (?). She seems to study a lot, but we all 
know what those College Prep, lessons are! In 
concluding, we'd like to ask Ellie why she per- 
sists in evading the rugs when walking and in- 
cidentally suggest the use of swinging doors! 
"Boy, page the ear mufflers!"

Enter the speedy wing of the Abbot Hockey

Where would Abbot be without them? Barb 
takes time to write plenty of letters, though, to 
all those people whose ic';ures she has hung 
around the room. There's something very Frank 
about her too. Bob and Peg seem to be an 
awfully good combination, and their Bible 
groups are as successful as their Sunday afternoon 
teas. But Bob — when reciting poetry to gentle- 
men callers, we advise quoting Longfellow!!?

When one thinks of Sandy, one never thinks

some other athletic weapon in her hand, and she 
wields it very gracefully — yea verily, don't we, 
Sandy? Sandy and Anne are an attractive if 
ever-noticeable combination. Marian is artistic 
too, and one of her greatest masterpieces is her 
painted, bespattered smock, the bane of Miss

Yes, she's the girl from some small town out

in Main Street. She has literary aspirations and 
is thinking of publishing the sequel to The Sheik. 
Her one ambition is to become slim and sylph- 
like. She's in Odeon too. Her interpretation of 
the character of the greedy girl in the French 
play last year has been commented upon. It was 
said to be very lifelike. Hat is going to have a 
class in "How to Roll the Eyes" or "Lady 
Vamp"! Watch for the posters.

Anne's our typical Southerner. She has a perfect 
Virginia drawl. Poor Anne used to be a rather 
slow mover, but now she's learned to move 
those long legs and arms of hers to some purpose. 
She certainly can enjoy a good joke as well as 
tell one. She's a conscientious student too, and 
she's very fond of stealing out at 5.30 to do it. 
Who ever heard of anyone forgetting to come to 
lunch? It seems impossible, but Anne just 
couldn't stop studying long enough to eat. Look 
out, Anne, you'll get blown away.

Why is Al's mouth all puckered up? She's 
just pronouncing her distinctive last name. She 
is so safe and sane and wholesome (all due 
apologies) that we can hardly imagine her having 
her wild fling, which she is determined upon. 
Al's always the backbone of any enterprise. 
And now while we're handing out the lilies (and 
cabbages) we'll just say, Al, that we think you're 
an all-around girl!

We call her Jam, 'cause that's her nickname 
for one reason, and because she's sweet for an- 
other. Her intimacy with Kay Damon is another 
thing we notice, but then, they ought to be, 
they've roomed together for four years. Janet's 
one of the people who star in plays. Remember 
"Dianthy" in the Senior-Mid play? She's in 
the Senior play too. Sometime, Janet, we'd like

to. Tubby — that's her other name — plays 
hockey too, in which she is inclined to give us a 
thrill now and then. We can't help but like 
Flopit, not only because she's so good-natured 
but, well — because she's Flopit !

The great hockey captain — Abbot's bravest

team grew pale when Whinery came on? What 
the school will do without her next year is the 
question. Brawn and brains combined, and 
sometimes expressed in being brutally frank. 
Really Anne, the world isn't as black as it's 
painted. Anne possesses the talent of being able 
to tuck her bobbed locks under and at the same 
time look nice. It is an art much to be envied.

Betty hitched her wagon to a star in infancy,

conclude she is the all-round athlete. When it

She's one of the recent additions to the class, 
but "belongs" already. She has a never-ending 
fund of information and she certainly can use it 
in an argument. We always think of her with 
her carefully waved hair (and prominent comb). 
We wish we could "carry on" with her long- 
worded and long-winded conversations. She can 
surely typify "language is golden", and not 
everyone can knit such a heavy white sweater!

Carol's an awfully good sport and has lots of

notorious, raving, tearing beauty. It's nice to 
have been abroad but doubly nice to return with 
Paris gowns. If you do miss Barbara, Burford's 
a pretty good substitute, isn't she? As for rag 
dolls, well Loie, you have it all over Raggedy 
Ann. You might establish a business and sell 
"Flopping Loises". Try it when you're hard up.

Many is the minute we wildly waste dancing

hot jazz on that old piano. By the way, Tubby 
is a funny name for an attractive girl like Marion 
— but you forget what you're saying when 
you're under the influence of her scintillating 
personality. It takes brains to come and gradu- 
ate in one year — and she has kept up the family 
name all right. We might be going to see clever 
plays by the Rugg Sisters some day — but no, 
we guess St. Louis has other charms than those 
of literature.

I have a great green forest 
When I am troubled or sad. 
I have a great cathedral 
To cheer and make me glad. 
It is always dusk in my forest 
And day is nearly done, 
It is always a dim cathedral 
Of trees and dying sun. 
There's always a breeze a-stirring 
And whispering by it brings 
With the joy of my dream-forest 
The song of peace it sings.

Tune: Mill Stream 
Shadows on the snow, 
Long moonlight rides, 
Cosy popcorn talks 
'Round a warm fireside. 
Swift toboggan flights, 
Long snowshoe hikes; 
It was supreme, 
We'll always dream 
Of Intervale. 



Tune: Hortense 
We went to Intervale all out of step, 
To get good-looking and a lot more pep — 
We looked at the choice of eggs or meat, 
Then ordered both, can that be beat? 
Pie or ice cream? both! we cried, 
Till we couldn't get more inside, 
Now we're fatter and not so pale, 
There never was a place like — Intervale! 



Look into the distance, over hill and vale, 

And you will see a place that is known as Intervale. 

After all our studying and grinding out of books 

We went 'way up to Intervale to get some cheery looks. 

Four days of snow-fights 

And the jolliest of p-l-a-y, 

Sleighrides in the moonlight — 

But that's not half of what we have to say. 

Pancakes in the morning, and hot beefsteak at night, 
And all the other good things that make your belt so tight. 
We had a lot of tummy-aches and awful nightmares too, 
But that was only half the game, and never made us blue. 

Now it's all over 

And the only thing to s-a-y- is, 

Do all your lessons 

So that you'll be seniors bye and bye:

{With apologies to Edgar Allen Poe) 

Once upon a morning dreary, while I slumbered weak and weary, 
And my mind had wandered off to Dreamland as on nights of yore, 
While I lay there gently napping, suddenly there came a tapping 
As of someone faintly rapping — rapping at my chamber door. 
"Tis that 'early bird' " I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door." 
Only this and nothing more! 

Ah! distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December 
I had asked her please to wake me as she'd tried to times galore. 
Up I must to finish working. On my English I'd been shirking, 
"D's" on all my papers lurking — lurking there as ne'er before, 
And the Honor Roll retreated from my grasp as oft before. 
Merely this and nothing more. 

Presently my soul grew stronger. Hesitating then no longer 
Out of bed I sprang and landed on the icy, creaking floor. 
As I stood there cold and shaking, how I cursed my undertaking 
And the girl who, me forsaking, shuffled down the corridor, 
Footsteps growing faint and fainter down the cold, dark corridor. 
Only this and nothing more. 

And the cold and shivery feeling which was not a bit appealing 
Chilled me — filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before, 
So back into my bed returning, boldly her dread summons spurning, 
'Cause my sleepy self was yearning for my bed as oft before. 
As I cuddled — now contented in my bed as oft before, 
Quoth I, "Nevermore".

Dear Alma Mater, as we go 

A greater work to do; 
We plant a symbol of our love 

Our loyalty and honor true, 

That ever more shall be. 

As we shall strive our work to do 

In calm or troublous days, 
May all that we have gathered here 

Of knowledge and of noble ways 

Be used in loyalty. 

And as this tree will stronger grow 
And reach up toward the skies, 

We too will strive to reach the heights 
That we may live true, noble lives 
Because of loving thee.

jWtrror* of Jf acultp Eoto 

Miss Bailey 

Her clear understanding and ready sympathy have safely tided all of us 
over our rough places. We all, and Seniors especially, realize what beautiful 
ideals she stands for, and know that her great influence has so awakened us that 
the good we may accomplish in the future will be largely due to her. 

Miss Kelsey and Miss Mason 

They seem to belong together — and to Abbot. No other combination 
could be considered! Patience is ever a virtue, and Miss Mason has shown, 
from chemistry classes to managing a Senior corridor, that hers can't be ruffled. 
Miss Kelsey shares honors, for giving, without showing us up, permission to buy 
toothpaste Saturday afternoons, and to make fudge "for the first time in ages" 
on Wednesdays. 

Miss Chickering 

Miss Chickering, whose astounding memory of facts and other things keeps 
us blinking all the time, is one whom we would like to have with us permanently, 
because of this, but chiefly because of herself. 

Miss Howey 

Perhaps if we can ever learn to grasp every opportunity as Miss Howey 
does, and to keep our eyes open to everything as she does, we shall be on the way 
to acquiring her contagious wide-awakeness and alert enthusiasm. 

Miss Bancroft 

Miss Bancroft is notorious for her baby talk, one of those outlets for a 
bubbling good-nature. 

Miss Marceau 

Her sweet and charming manners and speech are constant examples for 
Abbot girls to follow. 

Miss Matthews 

Miss Matthews has become most famous to us because of "Henry". She 
and Miss Marceau have given us a few informal but delightful serenades.

The Abbot Circle 19 2 2 

Miss Robinson 

Anyone who has taken Latin with her need fear no college board exams. 
Her strong personality asserts itself in classes as well as outside. 

Miss Grimes 

Her knowledge of calories is precious to the reducers at the table. Her 
entertaining talk as well as her appearance and actions, make us think of her as 
one of us. 

Mme. Craig 

Where would our French plays be without her! They would be nowhere 
at all. 

Mme. Stelle 

We suspected that she is attractive to men but we didn't realize until Stunt 
Night, how attractive, as a man, she'd be to us. 

Miss Sweeney 

We can't do it, so we might as well not try. We were not meant to pro- 
nounce "France" the way she does. The appendicitis and cane habits are a 
little more within our scope, as several girls have already discovered. 

Miss Baker 

When we accumulate a repertoire of appropriate stories to rival hers, we 
shall have done something to write home about. 

Miss Richardson 

We need not see Miss Richardson "at home" to know that her 
vivaciousness sets the pace there as much as it does here. 

Miss Bigelow 

Her smiling cheerfulness is so enheartening we all feel brighter just for 
seeing her approaching. The reducing class has increased her train of followers 
and has advanced the admiration of many to true devotion. 

Miss Hopkins 
Miss Hopkins, who so faithfully keeps us supplied with reference work 
is well known for her little witticisms. 

43 



The Abbot Circle 19 2 2 

Miss Johnson 

Miss Johnson takes such good care of us that we're seldom ill. When we 
do weaken, there's always the iodine and aspirin ready and Miss Johnson's 
interested solicitude. 

Miss Butterfield 

It's never too much trouble for Miss Butterfield to decorate the dining-room 
appropriately and arrange special menus for our gala days. It always adds a 
lot to the spirit and we owe her grateful thanks. 

Miss Bean 

Miss Bean's more abundant knowledge is the only way to tell her from one 
of us, for her notorious giggle is so misleading. (We hope being taken for us is a 
compliment. Miss Bean.) 

Miss Jenks 

Miss Jenks in her first year at Abbot has won an undisputed place in each 
girl's heart. We hope the stream of hair-dressing appointments she has made 
for us during the year will not tempt her to try her skill in that profession. 

Miss Burt 

Miss Burt is quite versatile because she can be both a star-gazer and a good 
sport. 

Miss Putnam 

Whenever we think of Miss Putnam we think of her behind her counter 
handing out chocolate bars or else in her fire-captain's uniform. Either is a 
pleasant memory and recalls good times.

®f)e Virion 



The silence of dawn crept up the hill, 

Even the thrushes and robins were still. 

And then I slowly saw you pass 

As clear as in a looking-glass. 

The glory of dawn was in your face 

And your footsteps light left never a trace 

Upon the daisies and violets blue. 

I gazed at the dawn, and the wind, and you, 

And my heart was very light and gay. 

Ah! but that was yesterday 

When the whispering wind, and dawn, and you 

Together to me were lovely and true. 

With a quiet, nameless ecstasy 

Throughout a long eternity 

I dreamed away a million years 

Of love and youth and tender tears. 

How fair you were — how fair and kind ! 

You, and dawn, and the whispering wind! 

And in one moment's loveliness 

I drank the sweet — all bitterness 

Fled with the night, and swiftly was gone, 

When you, and the whispering wind, and dawn 

W r ere one together, and life was ours 

Among the birds and summer flowers! 

But the moment passed, as moments do, 

And the whispering wind, and dawn, and you 

Fled swiftly on light feet away 

Into the realms of yesterday. 

But oh! why must such visions pass 

Like rainbow bubbles — to nothingness? 

Instead of the vision passing by, 

Instead, oh! fate, please let me die, 

Swiftly die upon this hill, 

With the vision in my glad heart still!

The Courant is the school magazine, and comes out semi-annually, in January 
and in June. It has a large circulation among the alumnae, and one of its pur- 
poses is to keep them more closely in touch with the school. The front part 
contains stories, essays and poems by the student body, and the other half of 
the magazine consists of alumnae notes, a calendar, and editorials, as well as 
write-ups of the plays, entertainments, and concerts. It contains a great variety 
of material, but as a whole is very representative of the attitude and feeling of 
the students of Abbot.

Odeon is Abbot's small but earnest literary society. The membership is 
limited to twelve; the members are chosen because of their literary ability, and 
are recommended by their English teachers. The purpose of the society is to 
improve and encourage writing. Usually some form of literature is studied that 
will be a help in original compositions.

The "A" Society is one of the largest school organizations, consisting of the 

girls who have received Honor "A's" or "A's" in athletics. Its purpose is to 

uphold the standards and spirit of school and it is a great inspiration and goal. 

The members enjoy many social events, ending with a camping party in the 

spring.

We're very proud of our 1921-22 hockey team! They certainly turned out 
in fine style and spirit for practice in all sorts of weather. And when Bradford 
Day at last came, all those mornings of honest exercise running around the circle 
stood us in good stead, because Bradford's field must be twice the regulation 
size — at least the team thought so • — but a little thing like distance couldn't 
keep us from holding them down to a tie. We're looking forward to next year, 
when we can use the new field and become extra expert.

Basketball showed a lot of "go" this year. The team was made up of 
absolutely new material. Caroline Lakin won fame by her high jumps, Woody 
by her speed, Nettie and Judie by their accurate shots, and Jimmy and Sandy 
by their ability to stick. Although Barb Goss was not able to be with us most 
of the fall, the team did well without their leader. Ruth Pritchard made a good 
showing on Bradford Day in taking Sandy's place. Enthusiasm, interest and 
good spirit were shown by these girls during all the fall, which was proved by 
their playing at Bradford.

Tennis is one of Abbot's major sports. A singles tournament is held in the 
fall and a doubles tournament in the spring. Barbara Goss, of the class of '22, 
was awarded the cup for singles this year. Under organized instruction greater 
enthusiasm and interest has been shown than in previous years and more girls 
have been making it their major sport. Anne Darling, Marian Saunders and 
Dolores Osborne were chosen to play Bradford Day, but owing to the weather 
and poor condition of the courts, they were unable to play.

"g>tx Wfa m** Wiih m lentils; Potl" 

Come! come through the portals of once-upon-a-time. Wonderful things 
you will find there, cities and gardens and fairies and queens; all true things that 
you loved and believed before you grew up and began to doubt. 

See, here is a winsome little boy as only "Nip" Page could make, sitting by 
a black pot boiling lentils. What was that cry? Oh, it is Helga Lundin as the 
beautiful queen greatly distressed. She is going to be decapitated because of a 
breach of etiquette. If only she could hide, she cries, until after the king's four 
clocks struck twelve she would be safe. 

The little boy hides the queen quickly for they hear someone coming. It 
is Libby Thompson as a strolling juggler in a striped coat, with three golden balls 
in his hands. She is very elusive and makes us think the juggler really truly 
magic. 

He goes his way and after him comes a little milkmaid with her pail on her 
arm. Dorothy Upton makes such a lovable little maid and she tells the little boy 
that there is a pot of gold and a pair of finger-rings offered to anyone who finds 
the escaped queen. 

After the milkmaid comes a groping old blind man whom Dolores Osborne 
makes very real to us. He shows the little boy how the blind can see. 

After the blind man comes Charlotte Hudson as a gay, dancing ballad 
singer. She sings to the little boy in return for some of his lentils. 

The truly dreadful headsman who enters is Libby Flagg, so dark and grim 
that we shudder. The little boy is terribly frightened and tries to make the 
headsman go away. But he will not. 

Just then three of the clocks of the king begin to strike twelve. But he is 
going to behead the queen yet. Just then he stops to sneeze, and the last clock 
has struck. The queen is saved! 

With Emily Van Patten, who is Memory, Ethel Goodwin as the Prologue, 
and Estelle Throckmorton representing "we" in the audience, we travel back 
by the paths of memory through the portals of once-upon-a-time.

"Joint (^toners in £>pain" 

By Alice Brown 

Perhaps this play has solved the problem which arises with the occasional 
misunderstanding with one's room-mate. Miss Dyer and Mrs. Blair at least 
solved it for themselves and they had the reputation of being the worst persons 
to room with in the old ladies' home. The scene is laid in a bedroom of the home 
and at the opening of the play Emily Holt as Mrs. Fullerton is moving her things 
from the room with the aid of Mrs. Mitchell, the manager of the home. Miss 
Dyer is seated on the other side of the room and it is hard to believe that this 
complaining old lady could be Esther Wood. At the entrance of Mrs. Blair, 
Miss Dyer's new room-mate, we are quite breathless to see what the outcome 
of this new combination will be, for Mrs. Blair has a most violent disposition. 
At first the two old ladies are in a state of continual warfare, but finally Dorothy 
King, who plays the part of Mrs. Blair, thinks of a plan. They mark a chalk- 
line exactly through the center of the room. One-half is to be Miss Dyer's home 
and the other, Mrs. Blair's. If one wishes to speak with the other she must go 
over to her home and knock at the door to obtain admission. We find that the 
plan works excellently and that through this little game all their troubles are 
soon ended.

"ftfje <^roobe" 

By George Middleton 

Sara had stayed at home with her mother while Connie, her younger sister, 
went to college. Now Connie had graduated and was home and Sara thought 
that she, at last, would be able to go away from it all, for she felt that she was 
getting into a groove and she had set her heart on being a nurse. But matters 
weren't just as she had expecte:! to find them, for her attractive young sister 
Connie had fallen victim to Cupid's arrow and it seems that her beloved Paul 
was going to Brazil within two months. He was most anxious to take Connie 
with him — and who could blame him for wanting such an attractive girl as 
Ruth Holmes made? But one of them had to stay with their mother. One must 
give up her heart's desire, and each unselfishly offered to do it. But Sara finally 
persuaded her younger sister that it was only right for her to go with Paul. 
Annetta Richards as Sara .made us feel with her how great this sacrifice really 
was and how little happiness the future held for her.

"Jfflargot's little affair" 

By Mary Elizabeth Polk 

Margot Smythe, a very modern flapper, is "dragged " home by an hysterical 
mother, a furious father, and a cynical brother because she has turned a perfectly 
proper dance into a shocking and disgraceful affair by leaving "Steve" in the 
middle of the floor and dancing with a "common Italian saxophonist", thereby 
lessening her mother's chances of social success and her brother's chances, which 
depend on "Steve", of business success. Margot, merely having "expressed" 
herself, thoroughly enjoys her family's scoldings and threats. In fact, she con- 
siders the situation quite dramatic and further shocks the family by announcing 
her intention to marry the notorious Guido. She admits that he knows nothing 
of the plan, but is perfectly confident that he will force her to marry him. At 
the crucial moment of her startling announcement, a very furious and rumpled 
Guido enters, demanding "that w'at ees hees". Margot, seeing in him a very 
different person from her late dancing partner, changes her mind much to the

relief of her family, and bids the angry Guido "good evening". He, however, 
very determined, rushes at her and she with his "gentle" aid discovers a diamond 
stickpin caught in the front of her gown. The pin is, of course, what Guido has 
come for and Margot, hardly believing that he has come for a pin instead of her, 
watches him, not regretfully, be ushered out of her life by Mr. Smythe and 
Austin. When father returns, he accompanies poor mother, who is quite over- 
come, to her room. Margot, still not understanding, reflects on the incident 
and immediately comes a blinding realization. Guido, of course, came after her 
but seeing her amid her usual surroundings could not presume to ask her to marry 
him and very cleverly used the pin as an excuse. "How perfectly simple!" The 
explanation is, however, perfectly satisfactory to her and she settles down for a 
nice long talk with poor old Steve, over the 'phone, while Austin appropriately 
closes the scene with a ceremonious "Amen" on the piano. 



"iou J2eber Can Wtll" 

By Marian Rugg 

Lillie went away for the summer engaged to two men because she felt she 
could not ruin either's life by refusing him. But during the summer she met 
Don who, she was sure, was the only man in the world for her. Now they both 
were home, at one of the dances, and Don insisted that they announce their 
engagement. Lillie was forced to admit she was already engaged to Jack and 
Dick. Don forgot his anger as he realized they were both at the dance, but 
demanded that Lillie break with them that evening. Lillie agreed hesitatingly, 
feeling she was about to give a death blow to two men she rather liked. But 
Jack entered with an indifferent swing and started to talk rapidly. He informed 
Lillie, without giving her a chance for a word, that he was really in love, for the 
first time in his life, with Eleanor Atkins. Jack left Lillie gasping as Dick entered 
for his dance. Lillie, this time, talked fast and furiously to prevent a similar 
disaster, but Dick interrupted her as she reached her crisis to tell her he loved 
another girl — Eleanor Atkins — and his feeling for Lillie was merely brotherly 
affection. Don returned to a subdued Lillie who tremblingly asked him if he 
knew — Eleanor Atkins!!? Lillie almost fainted as he drew out a letter from 
her, but it was just a note announcing her coming marriage to Billy Rowley. 
Lillie's spirits soared at this news — perhaps a little higher as she thought of 
Jack and Dick. So Lillie and Don, all their complications being settled, once 
more pledged their love and danced happily out of sight.

Hall of Jfame 



We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Maxfield Parrish, because of the color 
of his drawings, because of their startling unusualness, but chiefly because an 
Abbot girl's room would not be comme il faut without one of his pictures. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, long hair, because it is "woman's crown- 
ing glory ", because it can be beautiful, but principally because it is such a rarity. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, the letter rack, because it is something 
we are actively conscious of at least three times a day, because it looks so nice 
on the wall in the office, but chiefly because from its bland surface we receive 
(or do not receive) the thing which we want most. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Friday night, because it is the climax 
of the week, because it is the only thing that enables us to exist through the other 
six days, and finally because it is the only appointment that Abbot girls never 
forget. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Charles, because he brings us our mail 
faithfully each day, because of his resemblance to Abraham Lincoln, but chiefly 
because of his unfailing cheerfulness and willingness to help. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Dandelion, because he belongs to Miss 
Bailey, because he (Oh, green-eyed jealousy) has swam in the Frog pond, but 
above all because he is the only one in our midst who makes himself nonchalantly 
at home in the office. 

We nominate to the Hall of Fame, our floors, because they are a beautiful 
and remarkable hue of maroon, because they have an unearthly tenacity for 
catching and clinging to all kinds of dust, but paramountly because they 
SQUEAK.

{Apologies to the authors) 

'Won't you walk into my office?" said Miss Bailey to Marie. 
'I've the coziest little office that ever you did see. 
To get into my office, just stand outside the door 
And I won't keep you waiting there but half an hour or more. 
I've many things to say to you you can't afford to miss, 
So now I've asked you kindly in, please don't deny me this." 

"The time has come," Miss Bailey said, 

"To talk of many things, 

Of marks and posture, rules and dress, 

And what discredit brings, 

Of why you won't wear woolly socks 

And will wear senseless things." 

Mary knew a Phillips boy, 

His hair was black as ink, 
The reason Mary liked him so 

Miss Bailey couldn't think. 
He followed her down town one day 

Which was against the rule, 
And Mary got in trouble fierce 

When she got back to school. 
And so Miss Bailey turned him out 

When he went down to call, 
And would not let poor Mary see 

The dark-haired one at all. 
But still she met him after school 

Until she was found out. 
And that is what Miss Bailey had 

To talk to her about. 
And on restrictions she got put 

Because she'd disobeyed, 
And many a day and many a week 

Just on the circle stayed.

SENIOR ECHO 



ANOTHER CLASS CONFAB 

A senior class meeting was called for 12:55 in 
the senior parlor. The meeting was called from 
great commotion (everyone was discussing the 
Phillips prom) to a semblance of order. Secre- 
tary Kunkel read the minutes and called the roll. 
Misses Mount, Haskell, Welborn and Vander- 
slice arrived late. The president announced 
the sad death of one of Dandelion's near rela- 
tions and asked the pleasure of the class in the 
matter. Miss Brown proposed that flowers be 
sent. The class agreed. (A giggle rose in the 
corner by the chaise longue. A stern frown 
quelled the laughter of Misses Bloomfield and 
Bankart.) 

Miss Polk then mentioned that she thought 
the seniors should set a better example to the 
rest of the school in the matter of language. 
She had distinctly heard Miss Dewey say 
"heck" before two impressionable under- 
classmen, and she also stated that she knew 
Ruth was not alone in this sin but one of many. 
She called the class to think about this. The 
president then said that it was the custom for 
the class to send flowers to the president on the 
occasion of the senior play. She asked what the 
class wished to do in the matter. Miss Damon 
objected, saying there was not an overabundance 
of money in the treasury. The matter was put 
to vote and was agreed upon with a majority 
of one vote. The meeting then adjourned. 



Miss Verbena Vanderslice will address our 
flourishing society on Monday afternoon during 
the weekly meeting of the sewing circle. She 
will deliver a brief talk on "Work among the 
Zulus," based on her flying trip through that 
country. We feel she's well qualified to give 
this talk, as she is noted for her fleeting tours of 
heathen lands, ancHt is always a joy to us to 
hear one of her condensed as well as concise 
summaries of her educational trips. All mem- 
bers are urged to be present to finish our large 
quota of under-garments for the starving 
Russians. 



Daughters of the Jewish Gents 

Tiny Tenor will hold a benefit in her palatial 
residence on 3rd Ave. She will be assisted by 
Beckey Baker, Leah Lamb, Rachel Robbins 
and Delilah Saunders. The fete is for the benefit 
of the Brethren United in Recovering the Holy 
Land, and will be opened by a prayer recited by 



Rabbi Reuben Rose. All members of the Sunset 
Synagogue are invited to aid in the booths. 
Miss Sapphira Sands will be in charge of the 
decorations. Miss Proverba Polk will tastily 
preside over the refreshments, and Miss Ruby 
Rugg is the keynote of the music committee. 



Special Meeting of the Babbling Bessies 



President Gushie Gage calls a special meeting 
of Babbling Bessies on Tuesday. All members 
having ordered latest editions of "Prying Pru- 
dence's Propensities" bring fifty cents. Mem- 
bers admitted only by password which is " From 
Bad to Worse" until further notice. Another 
chapter of "Mable of the Meadows" will be 
read. All contributors to the "Tiny Tots" 
section of the Sunday paper must be in the hands 
of Gabby Goss, literary critic, by Monday 
evening. 

As we are vieing with our rival " The Squeaky 
Pens," our members are urged to do their best 
with the fairy stories.

A Georgian- Colonial Village 



IN the midst of the Georgian-Colonial homes 
and public buildings of this new but already 
famous community, Shawsheen Manor per- 
forms a triple service. It is the villager's inn, 
the traveler's resting place, and the pleasure- 
seeker's dinner-time destination. 

The old Reading Turnpike, one of the main 
boulevards north of Boston, passes the door; 
the connecting link between the classic elms of 
Andover and the busy, throbbing industry of 



Lawrence. Shawsheen Village is just a pleasant 
drive from Boston and only a short run from 
Lowell and Haverhill. 

With its broad semi-circular drive outstretched 
in welcome, here stands Shawsheen Manor, 
complete as modern planning and supervision 
can make it, from the white-capped chef in the 
kitchen to the spacious dining room, the lounge 
and the chintz-hung bedrooms high up beneath 
the broad hip roof.

Accounts of Women 



THE sphere of woman is constantly 
broadening and an introduction here 
will prove useful to her in assuming 
obligations that may come later in life. 
It is an erroneous theory that because 
a woman's first duty is the home, she 
should know nothing of business affairs. 
This Bank promptly meets the require- 
ments of its customers gives every 
detail attention— treats depositors cour- 
teously and endeavors to help in the 
solution of all financial problems.
